Executive Assistant to Managing Director, UK Commercial    
Age: 27

Hannah Kate Smith had many reasons why she decided to join the insurance industry: “I joined RSA on their global graduate scheme and there were loads of positives: the opportunity to work in a fast-paced business environment; the variation of roles available; the chance to travel and work internationally; the opportunities to progress; the energy of the people and the culture of the business. Above all, as insurers, our main aim is to help and support our customers – and helping people is something that has always resonated with me. I’ve been in the industry for five years and I’ve no intention of leaving.”

Recently promoted to her current role, Smith manages key business activities on behalf of the managing director to ensure the smooth running of RSA’s £2.3bn commercial lines operation, spanning the UK, Western Europe and Dubai. Prior to her position today, Smith led a team of account managers in RSA’s intermediated business and is a mentor to a number of people across RSA and the industry. Smith was involved in the set-up of a market-wide mentoring scheme for ACII candidates, which aims to progress mentees through their exams in order to complete the qualification within a three-year period.

In addition to being an IBUK Young Gun 2016, Smith serves as the current chair of the Young Members’ Committee at the Insurance Institute of London and was elected vice president at IIL this year.
